Ni Hao! Hello and welcome to Asia, one of LMB’s nine unique Signature Design Themes. As you walk through shoji doors you are greeted by natural decor, mossy greens, cool browns, stark whites, and shining blacks. A bleached bamboo wood desk with a perfectly manicured bonsai tree in a blue glazed pot sitting on one side… Check back Monday for much, much more! (In the meantime, you can try out that candied ginger recipe here.)
Last year I wrote that new trends were hitting the spa business. “Time is of the Essence” is one trend that has stuck. That is to say, people are still busy; they may even be too busy to fit in a traditional spa treatment. So spas are adapting and creating shorter programs and 2 in 1 treatment plans, not to mention they are staying open longer and opening in more convenient locations for busy travelers and business people. This means that spas are adapting. They are renovating to meet this demand. They are opening new outlets—at new venues like airports. And perhaps some people are getting tired of this daily.
It’s time to start planting again. Have you considered adding some blueberry bushes to your garden? Now’s the time! They require very little care as long as you plant them in neutral soil with plenty of sun. That’s about it. Feed them compost once in a while if you can–they like used coffee grounds and peat moss. Don’t plant just one! You’ll want a bigger bounty than one new plant can give. More importantly blueberry bushes need to be planted with at least one mate of a different variety to ensure cross pollination. Why bother? Fresh blueberries are very healthy and you can’t get much fresher than your backyard. You’ll.
